Product Description
Eye-catching and organized with many, many options for every month and season, you and your students will LOVE this collection! Through singing and chanting, your students will have a blast AND develop crucial reading skills along with their....
♥ oral language
♥ auditory memory
♥ sequencing
♥ patterning
♥ small motor skills (many finger plays are included) and
♥ imagination!

You’ll also see kids really build their reading fluency through singing the songs over and over (which they will definitely ask to do because it’s SO FUN!)! Even your non-readers will see their confidence SOAR as they sing & read these favorite poems and songs.


I’ve collected 50 of the BEST, catchiest, most popular songs I’ve come across... since I was a kid singing them myself through my 17 years of teaching. They’ve been hits with my kids and I’m positive yours will love them, too! I’ve even included teaching tips, action cues, and fun variation ideas for you on almost every song (you’ll find them in small type on each page). I even added a few originals and tweaked a few classics to make them even MORE cute and absolutely PERFECT for Kindergarten!!

This zipped file includes 3 awesome resources: small black and white copies with cover pages so you cam simply whip up monthly poem books for books boxes or sending home, full color displays for reading and singing together as a class, AND an editable power point file so you can pick and choose and put poems in any order you want, just display your favorites, and even add slides of your own!

So how do you use these poems and songs? Any way you want! I like to introduce one or two per week throughout the school year. In this purchase, you’re getting files to easily create small (half page) black and white (perfect for copying and coloring) books for each month of the year (“September Poems & Songs,” “October Poems & Songs,” etc.) They come 2 to a page so once you pick the poems you want and print, just simply run your pages through the copy machine with a side staple and slice the paper in half- BOOM- a class set of books is done in minutes! These little books would be ideal for popping into book boxes, sending home for reading practice/homework/fun, etc.

My classes have always really enjoyed singing the songs together as a whole group. You can use this to highlight letters, sounds, popcorn words, one-to-one… the sky’s the limit! Kids can read along in their little books and/OR you can display the words on your screen if you have a way to project a PDF or power point file… this purchase includes BOTH in full, dazzling color!

And I know you'll love this- the power point file is EDITABLE! Woo-hoo! I wanted you to be able to arrange the poems and songs in any order you want. You won’t be able to change words or pictures, but you can take out slides you don’t use and even add new ones of your own! Just imagine the possibilities!! If you want full-page books for kids, you could also print from these files. I love being able to put poems/songs in “my” order and then just singing our way through through. Not only is it great practice, but it’s also a winning time-filler (if you have a minute here or there you want to fill with something worth-while) and great addition to sub plans because once the kids learn the poems and songs, they can “run” this activity themselves! And bonus- subs will probably find it quite entertaining and adorable!
